Telltale Games has just revealed a brand new gameplay trailer for the upcoming The Expanse A Telltale Series during the behind the scenes segment of the Opening Night Live Gamescom 2022 event.
The Expanse A Telltale Series was initially announced back in December 2021 during the Game Awards segment where Telltale had announced their partnership with developers Deck Nine, and Alcon Interactive Group to create a narrative game based on Alcon Television Group’s The Expanse sci-fi television series.
The Expanse is set in the future where humanity has colonized the solar system and the people of Earth, Mars and the Asteroid Belt have long been in opposition with one another. When the crew of the Rocinante uncovers an ancient alien technology, a vast conspiracy begins to emerge, one that will bring the solar system to the brink of war. The series follows a group of protagonists as they uncover and become involved in a conspiracy that threatens the fragile balance.
The game will be introducing brand new gameplay elements that go beyond what people experienced with past Telltale games. Players will have the ability to communicate with the other crew members over radio keeps the plot and dialogue choices will affect the story’s conclusion.
Gravity will be a crucial part of the game’s setting as well as mechanics. While investigating shipwrecks beyond The Belt, players will use mag boots to walk on walls and ceilings and utilize Zero-G thrusters to float through the void. As they fly through sections of ships, players can interact with objects in the world and converse with members of their crew and these dialogue options will play as they navigate so they get to learn more about the world and their shipmates.
